Every Friday The Psychogenealogist shares a "Pic of the Week." The intent is to encourage thought and imagination about the spaces where psychology, genealogy, and history converge.
Vintage photographs of children, like this one, are some of my most popular blog posts. Here are two sweet 1950s kids, presumably siblings. According to the note on the back this is Janis and Steven on Janis’s 5th birthday, May 1, 1955.
I don’t have any other information about them but with a first name, a birthdate, and possibly a brother’s name, there is at least some chance we could find someone connected to these people.
I would love to know their story! Wouldn’t you?
